GAO wants federal agencies to track sustainable jet fuel use to meet federal goals

As the Administration makes a push for greater use of electric vehicles, many farmers are hoping to find a market in sustainable aviation fuel. The Government Accountability Office now says federal agencies should be tracking its use.

The Departments of Agriculture, Transportation, and Energy have already created a road map for increased production, but they did not include a way to follow their progress.
The report found sustainable jet fuel used at two large California airports only accounts for less than a tenth of a percent of all jet fuel.

The White House is still aiming to increase the production of sustainable jet fuel to 3 billion gallons a year by the end of the decade with 100 percent of commercial jet traffic using it by 2050.
